The difference between TPE and silicone materials

What are silicone and TPE materials?

Silicone has the advantages of safety and non-toxicity. The silicone material will not dissolve in water and any solvents, it is non-toxic, tasteless, and chemically stable. It does not react with any substance except strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid. The silicone doll has high adsorption performance, good stability and stable chemical properties. Silicone materials are chemically stable and can maintain soft elasticity for a long time. Easy to operate etc. Silica gel is a kind of special rubber. It has good mechanical strength, wear-resistance and high-temperature resistance after cross-linking. It is a thermosetting rubber. After vulcanization, it will not be melted when heated again. For water and silica. It is widely used in adult products such as silicone sex dolls and food.

The term explanation of TPE is: TPE is a thermoplastic elastomer, which is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic, easy to color, smooth and soft hand. It is easy to process and form, does not require vulcanization, and can be recycled to reduce costs. It is a general term for a variety of elastomer materials that have rubber elasticity at normal temperature and can melt and flow at high temperatures. In addition, it can be coated with PP, PE, PC, PS, ABS and other plastic materials (overmolding), or can be molded separately, and is also widely used as adult products.


The difference between TPE and silicone materials 

So what's the difference between them before?

  1. feel

Silicone generally feels slightly hard, but TPE will be very soft; of course, silicone can also be made quite soft, but the cost will increase a lot; in addition, the current domestic will be made to 0 degrees, can be manipulated, but relatively TPE will be hard.

  1. texture

The detailed performance of silicone is better than TPE; because of the slightly harder material, the performance will be better; some simulated hand patterns and details can only be shown by silicone, and TPE does not perform well.

  1. pull

Silicone can be stretched three to five times according to different theories. And TPE can be stretched to six to eight times. So TPE has better tension and more extreme movements.

  1. weight

The same volume of silica gel will be heavier than TPE. The exact weight depends on the manufacturer's workmanship and liner level.

 The difference between TPE and silicone materials

  1. price

The price of silicone is several times that of TPE. Obviously, TPE can save more production costs ,and you can buy an affordable sex doll.

  1. the aging difference

Silica gel is resistant to high temperature, low temperature, acid and alkali; except for highly corrosive materials, silica gel hardly reacts with any substance. TPE is not resistant to high temperatures, nor is it as resistant to aging as silicone products.

  1. smell

Silica gel has absolutely no odor; TPE will be more or less smell of gum or added fragrance. If it smells good, it is recommended not to buy; because there are cases of allergy to fragrance.

  1. environmental protection

Silicone waste cannot be recycled, and TPE waste, nozzle materials, decorations, etc. can be completely recycled. Obviously, TPE sex dolls are more environmentally friendly.

  1. processing performance

Silicone needs to be vulcanized and heated to form, while TPE can be processed without vulcanization. Silicone processing is difficult to form, while TPE production and processing are simple.

  1. Health

Compared with TPE, pure silica gel has higher cost, better heat resistance, is not recyclable, has a certain technical threshold for processing, and has a single product after combustion and decomposition. For adult products, higher heat resistance means more durable, higher cost and a certain processing technology threshold means that the product requires higher investment and capital, not ordinary small workshops and small factories can be produced at will, although non-recyclable Environmental protection is a problem, but for adult products, it is unique, indicating that toys are not reprocessed from recycled materials, reducing various moral hazards and ensuring consumer health.

The difference between TPE and silicone materials

Due to its particularity and high purchase price, adult products usually have a long life cycle. Choosing silicone dolls can protect the health of consumers more favorably, and TPE has the risk of being recycled, and it is also in the market. There are a large number of sex dolls with TPE material, which also increases the number of bad businesses to recycle the dolls and re-sell them after refurbishment, so when buying, be sure to buy through regular merchants.

Additional prefix

The materials used by sex dolls are many different. In addition, you may also see these words: ordinary silicone, platinum silicone, organic silicone, platinum tpe, jelly tpe. The prefix of most materials is the hype of the merchant. The gimmick does not rule out the use of more complex and expensive ingredients to improve. As a buyer, you don’t have to worry too much about the materials used, but you must learn to recognize the practicality of the finished product. The finished product meets your requirements, and the price is within your tolerance, you can choose to buy. As a manufacturer, as long as we can make better and more practical products, we will achieve our goal. It takes more painstaking formulas, uses more expensive and better materials, and makes better and more practical products. Of course, it will be recognized by customers.


The difference between TPE and silicone materials 

No matter what sex doll is made of material, you must note that we must choose a doll produced by a legal manufacturer. After all, the doll is a toy that you need to use for a long time and will be with you for a long time. This will well circumvent the possibility that some unscrupulous merchants will recycle the dolls to sub-charge them. Secondly, under quality assurance, there is no need to buy sex dolls beyond your budget, as long as the dolls within your budget are the best sex dolls.

 Both the silicone material and the TPE material are very similar to real people and can bring you a better experience.
